Off The Chart: 11 November 1987

Off The Chart: 11 November 1987

We head back thirty years to this very day in 1987 on this week’s Off The Chart! Steve and Julian take you through some of the week’s less remembered hits, discuss the day’s events, pick three tracks from one of the week’s big albums, pluck a track out of an international chart and play the top five singles in full. Which soul legend covered a song by a British group as well as singing on the same group’s latest hit? Who had two versions of the same song in the shops at the same time? And who released a live album in instalments? Click PLAY to find out!

Adam Ant at Rewind Scotland 2016
